CEP General Assembly and Conference on Alternatives to Detention
On 6-7 October 2016, following the 12th CEP General Assembly on the 5th, CEP is organizing a large international conference on one of its core business topics, namely “Alternatives to Detention”.
The event will bring together different perspectives and concepts regarding “Alternatives to detention” from various European countries. Besides the plenary sessions, several workshops will be a good opportunity to gain in depth information and knowledge regarding good practices and specific projects developed within the field of Probation. Specific topics that will be presented and discussed in the workshops are: drugs courts & drug treatment, the use of technology in alternatives to detention, probation & profession, mental health and radicalisation.
The items to be discussed at the General Assembly are particularly important in relation to the future of CEP. One of the major topics will be the the revision (renewal) of the statutes, since the probation environment in Europe is changing constantly. Also the membership fee system needs to be revised, partly as a consequence of these renewed statutes.
Other items on the agenda will be:
the goals and activities of CEP for the next three years
the election of new Board members, including the President and the 2 Vice-Presidents
the approval of new members.
